Forum: opensource_audio Subject: cross referencing collections

Hi. I've been getting educated about this site after first finding OurMedia. I've uploaded a bunch of stuff to the OurMedia collection over the last few weeks. Is it possible to make the same uploads visible to the open source audio collection, without duplicating the uploads? It seems like a waste of space and time to have the same media sitting in two places on the Archive's servers.

Thanks

There's an upcoming conversion happening which will move all of the existing audio and video collection to pure XML (right now, they're still using the website database) and should make putting things in multiple collections a lot easier. I agree that things are somewhat fragmented right now.

I don't have a definite ETA for this shift, though - apologies.
